Carnival Valor Review

Review of Carnival Valor

The 2004-built Carnival Valor cruise ship is the third of all 5 Conquest-class Carnival vessels - with sisterships Conquest, Freedom, Glory, Liberty.

The vessel (IMO number 9236389) is currently Panama-flagged (MMSI 354298000) and registered in Colon.

History - construction and ownership

Carnival Cruise Lines (CCL) is a US shipping company, trademarked brand and subsidiary of Carnival Corporation (shipowner). CCL was founded in 1972 as an independent company by Ted Arison (1924-1999, co-founder of NCL Norwegian).

CCL has the Corporation's largest fleet as number of vessels and GT-tonnage (ship sizes/volumes and passenger capacities). In 2023, CCL had ~9% (by revenue) and ~19% (passengers) share of the cruise industry's worldwide market. In 2024, the parent company (Carnival Corporation) had ~51% stake in the US$64+ billion industry.

Carnival Valor cruise ship

The 3000-passenger ship Carnival Valor and her sisterships are among the biggest in the CCL fleet. They are basically larger versions of earlier Destiny-class ships, as well as more feature-filled. More space reveals into additional decks, with even more bars and lounges, an upscale steak house, and well-proportioned public areas.

Decks and Cabins

Carnival Valor staterooms (1492 total, in 27 grades) include 54 Suites, 521 Balcony, 330 Oceanview and 587 Inside cabins, including 29 wheelchair-accessible (in all cabin categories). The ship has no "family cabins" but instead offers connecting rooms in various categories. Most cabins are sized 170-185 ft2 (16-17 m2). Cabin balconies are sized 35-75 ft2 (5-7 m2). The ship has 3 types of suites - Captain's, Grand, Ocean. The largest are Captain's Suites (500 ft2 / 46 m2 plus 150 ft2 / 14 m2 terrace).

The boat has 13 passenger decks, of which 8 are with cabins. Over 50% of all staterooms are outside, 60% of those are with balconies.

Shipboard dining options - Food and Drinks

On Carnival Valor, the two main dining rooms offer traditional dinner with set times and tablemates or flexible dining, via "Your Choice Dining" Carnival program. Washington Restaurant is nicer of the duo. It is located aft and framed by 3 walls of windows. Lincoln is positioned in a central spot, but both offer the same menu. At dinner, the vegetarian and low-carb fare is served, as well as Spa Carnival choices. Cuisine often exceeds expectations, especially at Scarlett’s Supper Club and the sushi station. The casual Rosie’s buffet offers a number of food stations with a variety of choices, including a salad bar, deli, dessert station, daily regional cuisines. The 24-hour room service provides a limited selection of items.

Carnival Valor cruise ship

Carnival Valor emerged from her 16-day dry dock on May 08, 2016 with a host of new restaurants and bars, including upgrades already received by most of the rest vessels in the fleet. In addition to the apothecary-like Alchemy Bar, candy story Cherry on Top, RedFrog Pub and SkyBox Sports Bar, the ship also received poolside RedFrog Rum Bar and BlueIguana Tequila Bar, as well as their complementary eateries, Guy's Burger Joint (which has a tie-in with Food Network superstar Guy Fieri) and BlueIguana Cantina.

Shipboard entertainment options - Fun and Sport

The theme of Valor's decor is "Heroes and Heroism," regarding not just Americans, but heroes from every corner of the world. Cruisers are first represented to the theme as they board through the atrium lobby on Deck 3. To be sure, there is still enough Farcus bling in the details, bright molded gold leaf-gilded eagles on simulated pedestals are scattered all around the liner, as well as coffered ceilings of glossy, reflective materials and plenty of blinking lights and flashing video screens to trigger a 1960's light flashback. Like her Conquest-class sisters, Valor also boasts a 3-deck theater - Ivanhoe, and a series of stores. Carnival Valor offers the typical Carnival experience blended with a handful of twists. The "old faithfuls" are also there: personal service and diverse evening entertainment ranging from Vegas floor show to jazz to the "piano man".

In 2021, Carnival Valor has scheduled two Transatlantic crossings. Both itineraries are 15-days, one eastbound from Port NOLA New Orleans to Barcelona (January 25 - February 9, visiting Hamilton Bermuda, Funchal Madeira, Malaga, Valencia) and one westbound from Barcelona to NOLA (February 26 - March 13, visiting Cartagena, Malaga, Funchal Madeira; Philipsburg St Maarten, San Juan Puerto Rico). Both Transatlantic cruises were planned because of the 17-day drydock refurb at Navantia Shipyard (in Cadiz Spain).

Carnival Valor refurbishment 2016 review

The list of deckplan changes made during the ship's drydock 2016 refurbishment (April 23 - May 7, done in Freeport Bahamas) includes:

  • New eateries and poolside bars (by the Fun Ship 2.0 program) were added on Lido Deck 9. These are Guy’s Burger Joint (replacing the Grille /starboard), BlueIguana Cantina (replacing the Grille /portside), RedFrog Rum Bar (pool forward starboard) and BlueIguana Tequila Bar (pool forward portside).
  • On Promenade deck 5 was added the Cherry on Top (candy shop) replacing the Formalities shop. New bars on Deck 5 are SkyBox Sports Bar (replacing Bronx Bar /portside), Alchemy Bar (replacing Jeanne’s wine bar) and RedFrog Pub (taking some space from the Club O2 lounge /portside).
